Critical Acclaim

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 21st Feb 2018

"The 2015 La Fontaine de Genin is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of crushed blackberries, black cherries and mulberries with touches of cloves and pencil lead. Medium-bodied with a firm grip of chewy tannins and plenty of expressive black fruits and spicy flavors, it finishes with a refreshing lift." (88 pts.)

JS90 JamesSuckling.com Friday, February 2, 2018

"Very rich, ripe and concentrated with plush dark plums and blackberries on offer with the tannins nicely cut in assertive but balanced style. Drink or hold." (90 pts.)

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
